John Cusack & Emile Hirsch in Hacker Action Thriller 'Pursuit' Trailer
"Keep me alive and I will give you names." Lionsgate has revealed an official trailer for an action film titled Pursuit, a new film from genre filmmaker Brian Skiba. Another of these forgettable direct-to-video looking action movies? Unfortunately. John Cusack and Emile Hirsch star in this action thriller about a troubled cop's hunt for a ruthless hacker, who’s committing savage violence as he searches for his kidnapped wife. But is Calloway's crime-boss father somehow involved in this explosive situation? Starring Jake Manley, Elizabeth Ludlow, William Katt, Andrew Stevens, and Graham Patrick Martin. This guy isn't the best director, he often makes action schlock, but these movies still do look fun in a beer & pizza movie night kind of way. I am also amazed they still totally overdo the hacker character in movies like this. Check it out.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Brian Skiba's Pursuit, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
An action thriller about a tough cop's hunt for an even tougher criminal. Det. Breslin crosses paths with Calloway (Hirsch), a ruthless hacker desperate to find his wife, who has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. When Calloway escapes police custody, Breslin joins forces with a no-nonsense female cop to reclaim his convict. But is Calloway's crime-boss father (Cusack) somehow involved in the explosive situation? Pursuit is directed by the American genre filmmaker Brian Skiba, of many films including Blood Moon Rising, Crushed Velvet, Dirty Little Trick, Slaughter Creek, The Jonas Project, .357, Defending Santa, Merry Ex-Mas, Beverly Hills Christmas, Rottentail, My Adventures with Santa, The 2nd, and Flowers and Honey previously. The screenplay is written by Brian Skiba and Andrew Stevens, Dawn Bursteen and Ben Fiore. Lionsgate releases Pursuit in select US theaters + on VOD starting February 18th, 2022. Look any good?
